Hope I undestood the question, but 32GB of Ram should be enough for 32 rosetta instances. They never eat over 1GB/instance, but sometimes it can be close. Most projects needs a lot less ram than rosetta.
For runtime I think the 8 hour default is ok for most cases. If you run only rosetta 24/7 and never got calculation errors, then you can increase runtime.
For threads it depends more of operating system, cpu and bios etc than boinc, how the cpu is used. For 50% CPU settings Boinc calls for 16 hardware threads(on 32thread system) and has no control over what threads it gets.
But it most likely runs on "real cores" in that case.

My ponies are starving, not enough crunchy work units :(
I was aiming to hit TOP50 this winter, but now I need to hold my horses.. or ponies.
For all seriousness, I think there is a bug, or work unit generator is getting stuck or false information how many workunits needs to be created or is available. It can't be like suddenly there will be tens of thousands workunits available and then number is going towards 8086. And maybe staff is trying to fix it, but it happens over and over again.
But still some news from staff would cheer cruncher up!
